A row of perfectly aligned teeth is beautiful and can give you the confidence to tackle life head-on. Of course, having straight teeth isn’t just good for your appearance; it’s also essential for your health. It’s much easier to brush and floss when your teeth are lined up properly, and your enamel won’t suffer from as much wear and tear since the pressure of biting and chewing will be distributed evenly.

Having braces placed by our orthodontist, Dr. Sfogliano, can save you from having to travel to different dental offices. It also makes it easy for us to provide preventive care that works alongside your orthodontic treatment. While braces are typically worn by children, adults can benefit from them as well. We’ll usually recommend traditional braces over other orthodontic options if the corrections that need to be made to the teeth or jaw are particularly extensive or complex.
Most people will notice right away if you have braces, but not nearly as many will realize you’re wearing Invisalign unless they already know what to look for. Invisalign aligners are made out of clear plastic that virtually disappears when worn on the teeth, allowing for a more discreet type of orthodontic treatment. You’ll wear the aligners for most of the day so that they can make the necessary adjustments to your grin, but you can remove them during meals so they won’t get in the way of enjoying your favorite foods.
